All the beinf were rather annoying with their commitment problems and family secrets. It was all delving into the psychology of Hannah, her past and why she had trouble committing to relationships. Being Committed Author s: She writes female contemporary fiction which is viewed to be at the high end of the chick lit market.

I feel kind of ambivalent about this book. It’s mostly ramblings and random thoughts by Hannah. May 27, vwool rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Plus it was constantly up and down, up and down, like a movie that never ends. An Equal Music Vikram Seth.

The story itself however didn’t have a lot of action or gravity to it. The main character was a cliched ‘zany yet well-meaning’ girl who has trouble with her relationships. Not the best or the worst of the genre… it takes the female lead through various relationship hoops to her ‘aha!

This was a predictable book and an easy read. The main character was, in my opinion, completely obnoxious and unlikeable. Why do authors keep doing that to me?

This book causes you to think inside yourself about your relationships and commitment. A Novel Author s: Nothing surprising or spectacular in the writing but it’s an interesting tale and the depiction of one of the side characters is probably the best I’ve seen for a narcissistic personality in anything I’ve read.

Being Committed by Anna Maxted

Okay, I am going off onto something else here now. It isn’t a quick read. I couldn’t buy into the main character’s change of heart in the last third of the book, and I don’t think any reasonably intelligent reader would either Which sounds like a sports car, but alas, no.
